doesn't look like it needs a resto to me.
I remember the parents of a friend back in *cough*1977*cough* had a lime green superbird...

Very Nice. The White and Blue was a great colour combination.

The superbird goes in for its back to bare metal respray next Monday. Got all the original decals to go back on, new rubbers etc. expected to take 4-6 weeks.

Will post some progress photos as it happens.

Can't wait to see the finished result. The more coupes on the road the better as far as I'm concerned. Ford could have gone bankrupt after the XCs & I'd still be a happy Ford fan :)

The Body Shop in Canberra. They have a really good rep. The bead blasting saves a heap of time.

Couldnt believe GT Ford Performance had the original superbird and 302 decals.

I agree re coupes - in canberra the only time i see other coupes is Summernats. Even then this year I only saw about half a dozen.

The coupe came back from bead blasting on Friday, body is pretty good, just some minor rust repairs and a couple of shopping trolley dents here and there.

Need help with something though. The paint should be cosmic blue and polar white (per all the Superbird sales brochures). Problem is that the paint code (3) spits out polar white and apollo blue in the paint code book (being a dual colour code). cosmic blue by itself is 8.

any ideas how this could be?
